Grandi Italiani is officially closing its doors after service Sunday, February 9, Owner Aron Celnik late-Wednesday announced on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
“We gave it our best shot, but now it’s time to say goodbye,” Celnik posted to the social media page.
“…Just a little over two months ago I put up a ‘Hail Mary’ on [Facebook] that resulted in a huge outpouring of support from the community. Within days our business almost tripled! Alas, as the weeks went by the excitement faded. While we’ve subsequently [did] better, it isn’t enough to sustain the business.”
Grandi Italiani isn’t the only restaurant Aron Celnik might have to say farewell to this year. His sister eatery Andre’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria will have to eventually close its doors to make way for an incoming mixed-use development, reportedly sometime in June 2020.
“My profound thanks to all of you who’ve been a joy in my life,” Celnik continued via Facebook.
“There are few things I enjoy more than making people happy with our offerings! If you can, please stop by to say goodbye and have a bite to eat. God bless you all.”
